Museo Santuarios andinos

Recommended
The Museo Santuarios Andinos was opened following the discovery in 1995 at the top of the Nevado Ampato (some 6000m high), of the body of a young girl, sacrificed by the Incas 500 years earlier. Called theIce Maiden , she was remarkably well preserved, as are her clothes, by the glacier in which she was imprisoned. The museum also exhibits many objects used as offerings and a film on the research methods.
